NEW COURSE OF STUDY.
Rudyard Kipling Suggests That
Shooting Be Taught In Schools.
Rudvard Kinling. mortified at the
fnnt that Rnelishmen are not so ex
pert in marksmanship as they oughi
to be, has advanced the use of the
rifle in the schools of old England.
"Rifle shooting." says Mr. Kipling,
ahnnid Iia tancht the same as are
th a B C.'s. Such a course would
not produce barbarians. Everything
must be subordinated to suooiing
The young idea, according to mi.
mniinp must be taueht to shoot and
shoot straight. It must be taught to
"rpt tho dron" before the other fel
low has time to reach half way to his
hip pocket. The Krag-Jorgenson mus.
replace the cricket bat and the Rem
ington take the place of the whoople
In tho recreation hours at the schools.
Teachers must hereafter make out
their weekly reports for children to
take home to their parents something
In this style:
Reading, 8: writing, 7; spelling,
5; geography, 3; punctuality, 8; de
portment, 4; marksmanship, 9.
Remarks: Johnny must pay more
attention to home study. He Is a

NO POWER PLANT AT MILTON, j
Such !s i ! Wed Received From
That Place by Wire Today. j
It Is now announced on good au
thority that there will bo no power
plant Installed on the Walla Walla
River at Milton for the Washington
& Oregon Electric Rnllway, Light nnd
Power Company. '
it is difficult to got Information ns
to why the company abandoned the
Idea of building a power plant at this
place. The promoters were very
highly elated over the site and said
they could generate all the power at
this one place necessary to run tholr
road and furnish all the lights de
manded along tho lino. T.he only ex
cuse offered now is that the price ask
ed for the site is too exorbitant.
It will be remembered by the read
ers of the East Oregonhn that Mr.
Mellmann. president of the company,
and one or tho chief promoters of the
proposition, announced through this
paper and through all other publica
tions In the country that he hid se
cured this power plant site. Ho tlhl
not say he was figuring on a sltp at .
Mllto nor might build n power house
at Milton, but nnnounced In positive
terms that the place had already been
surveyed. He also announced tho
number of feet of pipe which would
be used to transmit the water to the
power plant, where It would be locat
ed, and said work would begin on this
plant at once. 1
Now It Is announced that the Mil-j
tnn tmwnr alto Is abandoned and now-1
er will be gonerated at Dayton andj
on the Tukanon for running uie roau.
We are not nblo to look at thlnsB
impartially and abstractly, but we
judge of everything In the light of Its
environment it fuses with Its envi
ronment and the environment bo
comes a part of It. Mahln's Maga
